5.0/5

Critic Rating

This season Esther speaks to a constellation of new relationships: A couple wrestling with the guilt they feel over the happiness their infidelity created. Another trying to make space for their queerness in an outwardly appearing hetero relationship. A set of friends trying to sort out if their childhood friendship needs to continue into adulthood. And Esther checks back in with couples from seasons past to see where they are...

Ammar Kalia • The Guardian Jul 28, 2022

"...features a real therapy session with a couple each week, allowing often messy self-realisations to inform listeners’ reflections on our own lives. Although it can be heavy, listening to Perel is like witnessing an artist at work."
